Love new cooktop!
Love the look and performance of this KitchenAid cooktop. Heats up very quickly and evenly. Found it a little harder to clean than my old cooktop, but still worth the little extra effort...Read complete review

We purchased this cooktop based on brand reputation, some of the on-line reviews, and the sleek design. It is hard to control the heat and the definition of the burners is not good. We are avid cooks and entertain often in our kitchen so both function and aesthetics are important to us- this model has neither. After every use we take a deep breath and once again attempt to clean the darn thing- it's at least a three step, ten minute ordeal to remove spilled food, lift the stains, then remove the resulting film and streaks. We let it cool off,wipe it down, them get the soft scrub, then get the Windex and paper towels. All of this and there are still food stains and spots. Tonight we tried a friend's recommendation to finish it with a single edge razor blade... That definitely helped but there is no way you should have to work so hard to clean a cooktop. Don't be fooled by the sleek design, the only time it looks great is the day it is installed and when there is no light on it. After just 9 months we are alrady dreaming of the replacement.

Happy with my Cooktop
By Love to Cook
from Grantham, NH
Comments about KitchenAid 30 " Stainless Electric Cooktop:
I have had this cooktop for almost 2 months now and am very happy with its performance. It is easy to clean and always looks great. I had gas in my prior home so this took a little getting used to, but I have no regrets with having purchased this item
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Could be a better design and use of space
from Novi, Mi
I am happy with my new range but.... I bought the range top without seeing it in person.. I did not realize how much surface space you lose when the digital controls are on the surface of the cooktop. So, the 4 burners seem quite close together as the lower right hand corner of the cooktop is all controls. Also, as the cooktop is black, I have a hard time seeing where the rear (3 of them) burners are until I turn on the heat.
Liked my previous one better
I wish I had paid closer attention to other reviewers. I replaced my previous kitchen-aid which cracked after I dropped something on the edge after 10 years of daily use. This model is either red hot or not heating at all. I very much dislike this and would not buy again. It does not clean nearly as easily as my last one and the buttons are not intuitive at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love the look of the cooktop.

Went from gas to electric so it took a little bit to get use to it but love it so far.
from Pine Mountain, GA
I bought this product a couple of months ago and am very pleased. The 2 even-heat elements work great and I love the element that will vary in size..
Not worth the money - nor the aggravation!
from Huntingdon Valley, PA
This model cooks pretty well. I enjoyed the Even Heat element for a white sauce I made. However, cleaning is totally painful, difficult and unsupported by customer service. The day after I cooked the first meal I called K.A. A customer service person told me there was nothing they could to help me; when I asked for a C/S supervisor, she kindly told me she would send out a complimentary cleaning kit. My question: why wasn't this put into the shipping box with the unit? No answer. AND, no cleaning set yet. Now another burner is totally messed up. And, all I cooked on that burner was celery, onion and tomato. Am mystified where the caked on gunk came from. And, I can't get it off. I'm about to contact the retailer and tell them I want a replacement - to another manufacturer.
I am in love with it especially its safety feature. It is very safe that my kids or I when cleaning don't accidentally press any key to turn it.
from Coral gables
No knobs is a must. I just wished I could see the burners better. The surface is all dark and I can only see the burner area when I turn it on. But other than that, it is great
